Question Queasy cutting (Eraser burning) HeLPPP - October 2nd 2012, 07:48 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

So I get extremely queasy/light-headed and nauseous every time i cut myself and these cuts aren't even bad or deep, I want to go deeper but I always faint or throw up before i can continue cutting. So I've resorted to eraser burning [X]

I faint when I get shots, I fainted when I got my ears pierced, I fainted when I got my eyebrow pierced. I almost threw up the other night when I was cutting, I have a really high pain tolerance, I mean I can eraser burn [X] and I'm completely fine. But when it comes to piercings or needles or cuts or blood I can't handle it. Why is this? What's going on? Is it a mental thing? What can I do to stop it? I'd much rather be cutting than burning.

P.S If you're gonna rant at me for self harming; go away I don't care

Hey there, I doubt anyone IS going to rant at you. For the cutting: It may not really be the pain, it might be the sight of blood. My teacher always threw up if she saw blood and/or had a shot because of this.
Some people do faint while getting piercings and I don't really have an answer. But it can be considered pschological but not an illness of some sorts, it's just your bodies way of saying 'you know that hurts, right?'.

Maybe find another way to not really harm yourself?

When you can no longer think of a reason to continue, you must think of a reason to start over.

Yea I agree with Jay. You probably get queasy and light headed because of the blood. Its just how some people are so you will be queasy at the sight of blood forever its just how your body is.

ďIíve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. Iíve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, Iíve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. Iíve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.Ē
